    Morning, very cold and slippery outside, dog walked about to have a bowl of porridge and a cuppa.
    Be careful outside

    Had to bin the ride into work as it looked pretty icy out there. Now sitting on the train feeling like I need some exercise...will have to make do with mental gymnastics at work instead.

  • Morning

    Cool but not that cold here, bit of snow but nothing serious. Neighborhood gritting duty last night paid off and our road was ice free. Office is very, very quiet. Several people have said they can't get in, including 1 who got 90% of the way here then turned around and drove all the way back home :roll:

    Nah don't bother. I tired that and went flying. My knees have been doing turns over the last 3 months.

    Brisk -2 declined cycling same reason as Steveo seems the little flurry of snow froze so lots of ice.

    Strong coffee and browsing censored on the internet is the order of the day.

    I rode in, because I'm fcuking nails. Not because my route is 99% heavily gritted bus route, but because I'm basically granite in slightly fat cyclist form. I laughed in the face of the slight skin of ice on the puddles at the side of the road, and the frost on the windows of the cars, and the occasional bit of slush.

    Me chipping wood with my cheeky chipper machine wotsit and... using my chainsaw to get the bloody stuff to fit in the cheeky chipper, So that means that this cheeky chappie will be feeding his cheeky chipper whilst using his cheeky chopper.

    It's sunny, crisp and dry.

    Stuck at work chasing idiots wishing the ground would open up under them.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
  • veronese68veronese68 Posts: 22,318 Lives Here
    I drove in because I had to give the Mrs a lift in, would have ridden but probably on the old MTB as the park does get rather crunchy under the wheels. Have to ride over to the old dear's tonight and pick up her car to deliver it into the dealers tomorrow morning.
    Later is of course pub seeing as I do believe it is Wednesday.

    i rode in, bit of slush from the overnight rain, not icy though, quite nippy though

    sun is low in the sky from gmc towers, about time to bail i think

    just getting ready to go and b4tch slap an imbecile who has wasted too much of my time and caused family members too much stress.

    much prefer to be watching Pokemon with the boy whilst sitting in front of the fire but needs must.

    Well, I wouldn't stand in the way of him if he was hurtling towards me on his bike at well hard speed.

    What's this? A tacit admission of inferiority to a Geordie from a Smoggy?

    My brakes will stop even my massive bulk on a sixpence. You cheeky [email protected] Though they do wear out fast.

    Freezing fog tomorrow. I shall laugh at that too.

    my route was also not bad and totally not a bus route which is heavily gritted either :) the cycle paths though OMG :shock:

    still whilst I was wimping out and walking the bike on the shared path like bambi, a guy road past me completely unfazed by the ice rink conditions or the temperature as he was wearing shorts.

    positives though, plenty of room in the bike sheds
  • veronese68veronese68 Posts: 22,318 Lives Here
    He may have been wearing shorts wavey but I doubt there was much of his manhood left. I once asked a chap riding in shorts in sub zero temperatures if he was cold, he answered in an alto soprano and I rode off laughing.
